Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Team

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Team provide specialist care to Greenwich residents living with COPD. Patients are given the tools to self-manage their condition and stay in the best health possible with a combination of clinic appointments and visits in their own home when necessary.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation, a seven week course of twice weekly education and exercise, is also available for patients.

Patients who feel unwell can call the service for assessment, treatment and advice, which allows patients in a period of 'exacerbation' to remain at home, monitored by the COPD team, avoiding an unnecessary hospital admission.

The team also manages the oxygen prescription service for patients registered with a GP.
